Craft Supply Giveaway + Jewellery Organiser Clutch


THANKS FOR ALL THE ENTRIES THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
Happy Crafting
Mel

Time for a giveaway - two in fact! This year I'm participating in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day. 


Hi there to all the newbies and to my followers an extra special thanks for hanging with me. I've had a busy week but I did managed to finish my 5000 word psychiatry essay early - well on Friday, and it was due Monday, so I had a guilt free weekend sewing up my new idea. I started with a magazine prototype, then I did a quick version with some cheap not so pretty ikea fabric (the one with the creepy birds - in my defence it was cheap, and I was convinced I would have a use for it - and three years later I have), then the good version I made was too short for my frame! So version no.4 is finally complete but I'll get back to it later. I'm sure you're all hanging out to see what I'm giving away. These are the items up for grab in the craft supplies giveaway - all the items are also available in my shop and so I've compiled almost one of everything for one lucky winner.

The Question

So back to my story about the four tries it took it get my weekend craft project right. Can you guess what it is? I'm sure you're all like we've seen these wallets with the flip lock frames EVERYWHERE for $8...well I have a stash of these frames so I decided to come up with some new ideas on how to use them. So you remember my post about my cheap jewellery purchases - it's been sitting in the box it came in for a few weeks now. Well it's found itself a new home....any ideas yet?


Wait for it....


A travel jewellery organiser clutch!


Instead of rolling your jewellery on itself with the risk of crushing and tangling, this one folds together. 


On the far left there is a clear zip pocket with three seperate compartments - one large enough for bangles and the other two for earrings. Next to it there's a ring pillow which is held in place with a snap button. 


On the right side there are three long pockets for necklaces. There's one larger one for chunkier necklaces on one side and two skinny ones next to it.The pockets are long enough to avoid tangling between the different necklaces and the clasp sits at the top along the strap. 


This is what the jewellery organiser clutch looks at from the side, the necklace pockets snap together, and the clear pocket holds together with the metal frame.


The real QUESTION 
Do you like this type of travel jewellery organiser? What would you improve and would you prefer to purchase a complete clutch or would you be interested in purchasing a sewing pattern for this clutch instead?

Happy Crafting and Good Luck for the Giveaway!

  1. wow, this is great, i'd definitely purchase one, or if really brave the pattern

  2. I love this jewelry clutch!! I would like the pattern, it looks like a fun project to make! Although, it wouldn't hurt to have the finished ones for people to purchase too!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I love this idea, although I don't usually buy patterns for this kind of thing. It is an awesome creation! I know my mother in law would want to buy one already made. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  4. What a great idea! I have a whole list of ladies who would love to have one of these. I would probably just purchase the item instead of the pattern, but I could give a pattern a try.

    ReplyDelete
  5. how fun! i would love to be able to purchase the pattern so I could use the fabric I already own. The only other thing I would add to improve the clutch would be a wrist strap - but that's just me personally. Otherwise, it's a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh my gosh it's great! I'd love the versatility of a pattern but a ready made one would be awesome as well!

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's great! I would buy a ready made one because the hardware would be hard to find where I am.

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's very pretty and unique. I love how it looks like a cute clutch. I do not see much room for improvement. I would prefer to purchase a finished clutch because it looks pretty fiddly (a lot of little pieces to mess with!) Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  9. i think this is a great travel jewelry organizer!! Really cute! Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  10. The travel organizer is so clever and very attractive! Thanks for the giveaway, would love to win!

  14. love it! I think I'd probably rather purchase it, even though the pattern wouldn't scare me off. However, if the pattern is really easy to follow, then I'd could see myself making them for all the women in my family as Christmas gifts!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love a organizer. But I think I rather purchase it because those patterns scare me off (since English isn't my first language)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your jewelry clutch is amazing. I think I would rather purchase one already made.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think it is great as it is, never seen one like it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the organizer. The pattern will be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ooh I think I'd buy rather than make - but maybe not in green, I'm not green's friend at the moment weirdly. More boudoir colours- reds, oranges and hot pinks I reckon!

    ReplyDelete
  20. looks great.i'd like a pattern so i could customize it :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is a great idea, I'd love a pattern!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow yo uare so inventive! I love jewellery rills but actually hate that they take up space and your flat on that can also stand is brilliant!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's really cool. I'd prefer a pattern so I could customize. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love that jewelry clutch, and would love to purchase that pattern. I would even purchase a giant version of it to hold even more jewelry.

    ReplyDelete
  25. cute, and i'd prefer a pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My god, that is genius! I would probably buy both to be honest.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love this idea! And I would buy both the clutch and the pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a neat design! I think I would like to purchase a pattern, and then be able to make it in different fabrics for different people.

    ReplyDelete

  31. Love the jewelry organizer. Would prefer it made b.c it looks difficult to make. Thank you for this giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  32. really clever..id buy the thing ready made because i would know where to buy the metal claspy thing :) raineoc@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, i dont think i could choose. Id love to brave the pattern OR just buy one already made, yours is made so beautifully and i love the green chevron.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love it! I probably would be more likely to buy the pattern than the bag, but I'd be thrilled if my mom got the actual organizer for me. My jewelry is alwway such a jumble when I travel!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow! You did a terrific job. I tried to make a wallet last month, then I made another to improve the glaring wrongness of the first one. I'm still thinking I might need 1 or 2 or 10 more prototypes before I get it right. Knowing how difficult it is to sew anything meant to organize anything, I would totally purchase one of these. You should stock them in your shop. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oooh, this type of jewellery clutch is perfect for travelling! I really don't like the ones which roll up and tie as they just don't seem very secure.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hmmm, this is gorgeous... I think based on my sewing abilities that I'd like to be able to buy it finished! Though I'd consider the pattern, too, because I might want a bunch! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think with so many people being crafty now the kit would be great...we all need things to do! Love your idea!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Okay, that's just stinkin' smart! I'd like both, if I see a finished one that fits I'd buy it, but I'd probably want to customize a few for gifts too, so I'd buy the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'd probably be more likely to buy already made. I'm also a new follower and liker :)

  44. I think I'd be more likely to buy the finished product than the pattern. It looks complicated.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I LOVE this! I think I would rather purchase one. Not sure if I could do it on my own!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love what you did with the purse frame. The only thing I would change is maybe make the necklace part clear vinyl like the other side so you can see the necklaces. I would probably purchase either a completed one or a pattern. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm a new follower...looking forward to reading your blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's a great idea, love your giveaway. I'd definitely like the pattern, I need to feed my sewing addiction!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think you should do both because pattern may a bit complicate for beginner and complete product would be perfect for gift or bridal party gift

  55. this looks great .... I like the concertina idea and would definitely rather buy one than make one. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I wear very little jewels, and always the same. So I don't need to transport them since I wear them. My daugthers may need somthing like your jewelry clutch but I find it a bit big, so I will prefer smaller pouches.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I would probably purchase the pattern and sew the inside with that tarnish retarding fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am still a sewing beginner so for me I would buy it so I knew I was gerring a god one and not wasting beautiful fabric and frame!

    ReplyDelete
  59. This looks like something that would be great for traveling. I would rather buy it premade than just a pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  60. It looks like a great pouch, very classy! I'm more of a pattern buyer then buying one already made but then again, it depends on the difficulty!

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a great clutch! I would buy the pattern or the clutch.

    ReplyDelete
  62. It looks great but I wouldn't buy one as I have very little jewellery and when I travel I wear what I want to take with me!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Cool idea! I would love to own one!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would like the pattern but I think you should offer both the item and a pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Mhhh. I do not have much jewellery. But I believe, my sister will love it, so maybe i would buy a patterm !

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love the clutch! I'd like the pattern...but I think you could offer both!

  67. I love it, it's perfect as it is

    ReplyDelete
  68. That's so cute! I don't wear jewelry, but if I did, I think I'd be interested in buying the pattern or a kit. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Great idea. Would like the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I follow your blog in my reader!

  71. My little girl needs one of those. I spend hours untangling necklaces for her.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Love the jewelry clutch... the ring pillow is such a great idea. I would definitely use something like this when we travel. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would probably rather purchase, but, if the pattern was easy for beginners I would try it thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'd probably rather purchase a pattern, then I could have a full set of travel accessories that match!

    ReplyDelete
  75. What a neat jewelry organizer! I currently just throw my jewelry into a small zippered compartment of my luggage, and I can't tell you how much jewelry I've lost that way! I need one of these! I'd buy the pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love this jewelry organizer! I would probably Bohr purchase a completed one and a pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I rather purchase the completed one. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  78. What a clever jewelry clutch! I don't think I would change anything, and I would definitely at least want to try making one from a pattern before buying a completed one..after I botched it. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  79. What a brilliant design! I would totally give the pattern a go!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Brilliant idea. I love it the way it is!

    ReplyDelete
  81. The jewelry clutch is so unique! I would totally buy the pattern because I enjoy printing my own fabric and sewing. I think these would make wonderful gifts as well. Really smart design, kuddos to you for coming up with it.

  82. Great idea! I'd absolutely go for the pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  83. As much as I like to sew, I would probably purchase a completed pouch rather than try to make it myself. It looks a little complicated for my abilities! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think it is a cool idea! I would definatley use it!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I am a new blog follower - looking forward to your tutorials. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Oh wow, that's a great design! I'd prefer to make one myself as that's the joy for me.

    ReplyDelete
  87. i like the design. i would prefer the pattern

    ReplyDelete
  88. I can tell that would be way too complicated for me to sew, so I'd prefer the option to purchase the completed item. :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I would buy it for my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Like many other comments, I'd prefer the already made clutch. Mine would never come out as nice.
    I've so been wanting to follow one of your tutorials but have
    lacked the supplies.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm in 'Like' with you on FB

  92. The travel organizer looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  93. That is an awesome organiser. I love the ring band!! I would buy one for me!

  97. What a great organizer I love it

    ReplyDelete
  98. Love the clutch! I would buy a pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Cool idea! it makes such sense... i think i'd go for the pattern :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. Wow! This is a really cute clutch and would be very nice to have while you were traveling. I would love to have a pattern so I could make it just for "me". Thanks for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Wow, another great giveaway! I would definitely be interested in a pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think it's an awesome jewelry clutch! I like it better than rolling the jewelry, especially if I had bangles in there!

    ReplyDelete
  103. You've completely confused me, I think I am supposed to reply to the jewelry craft supplies giveaway here and click the link above about the Jewelry organizer. Well, I will do both I guess. I LOVE the jewelry organizer and would rather buy one than have the pattern. I love the craft supplies and would use them to make mixed media art projects.

  104. I like the idea. I would be more interested in purchasing something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  105. So the prize - you have to make it yourself eh? Alright, count me in. The jewellery clutch is an interesting idea. One thing is if I were a buyer, and I look at the pretty fabric, I would definitely want it as a clutch.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Great idea! These would make super cute bridesmaids gifts, too. I think it would be silly not to market both the pattern and the finished product-surely both would be good sellers.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I'd love to buy a pattern or kit to make one! What a great idea:-)

    ReplyDelete
  108. The pattern for me!
    peachstateme (at) hotmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oooh! I like that! I don't care for rolled jewelry pouches. I like that this one has structure!

    and for me, i'd rather have the pattern. that way i can match it to my vera bradley luggage i already have. and also make them for gifts for my family to match THEIR vera bradley pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I like the finished one :-)

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is exactly the kind of pattern I'd love to try, I like slightly unusual but useful sewing projects and woul love to try this one!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I LOVE the organizer - Tangled necklaces are my traveling pet peeve! I would buy it probably, but it might be fun to make. Though I'd have to buy a kit for you so it'd be just as easy to buy it all made. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love this idea and would be more likely to buy a pattern and make up some gifts. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Organizers like that are so convenient to keep everything straight! Saves so much hassle!

    ReplyDelete
  115. This is a brilliant idea, would love to have a go at the pattern. How soon before Christmas would you have it ready?

    ReplyDelete
  116. Since I usually pack my jewelry in a cotton lined gift box with a hair stretchy around it, this jewelry pack is brilliant. I would much rather buy it than the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I would definitely like the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Wow! I think that is awesome! I would probably be more likely to buy the pattern. I can't think of any improvements offhand.

  131. What a great organizer! I think I'd still be worried about the necklaces tangling, so I'd want the dividers to completely separate them.

  133. I love it and would love a pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I think that's brilliant and I need/want one! Personally I would love to make it myself. Maybe you could offer the sewing pattern plus fabric/notions as a kit? I'd definitely be up for that.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I gave a detailed answer on your other giveaway post. To sum it all up: I like the jewelry organizer and would buy the finished product instead of the pattern. Unless, of course, you offer a kit.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Wow, this is great! I can't really speak to changes until I could try it out. As for purchasing the finished product versus the pattern - I'm on the fence on that one. I think I'd probably like to try it myself so put me down for the pattern.

  137. Yes, I like the jewelry clutch and would prefer a pattern to a completed clutch (which is almost always the case for me).

  144. While i dont because i prefer cute boxes for my jewellery, im sure many would love it! I think selling the case itself is better:) thanks for the giveaway!

  145. What a great idea! It'd be nice to have the option for buying either the clutch OR the pattern depending on how motivated/skilled a sewer the person is.

    kate1485 at hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  146. I'd like the option for both, i think

    ReplyDelete
  147. Seems cute, but I don't really like to wear jewelry, so storage isn't really an issue for me. Good luck with your studies! carrie dot hare@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  148. I would love the pattern for the clutch. I always try to make things myself first.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Oh wow! That is seriously awesome! Hmmm, I do a lot of sewing but I think in this instance I would prefer to buy a completed clutch versus the pattern. Although it would be nice to be able to choose custom fabrics for it (like if you wanted it to match you luggage a bit or something).

    ReplyDelete
  150. Wow what a great idea!! Personally I would like the pattern so I could make my own with the fabric's that appeal to me. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  151. That is a great idea! I've never seen anything like it. I think it's the kind of thing I'd rather purchase already made.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Woah! That is an incredible idea! It looks way too complicated for me to make with my current skills, but the world most definitely needs this pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Great idea! I'd rather purchase a completed one.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I would like to purchase the materials and patterns to do it myself. And this is a great organizer when traveling. Thanks for the chance.
